Quote from: paruses on October 30, 2021, 02:40:57 PMThe equity release ones still shill the cruise angle but are now really pushing the "get your kids on the property ladder" angle with a deposit. I get really depressed seeing those because you know so many people are effectively being conned out of a lot of money and the potential to pass that on to their kids (or an animal rescue or whatever they want).
Quote from: Huxleys Babkins on November 01, 2021, 12:10:25 PMYeah, those are awful. Why let your kids rent and pass on your valuable, well built property to them when you die, when you can sell parts of it off for below market so they can afford the deposit for a shitty new build?And the great news is that once you're gone, your lovely bungalow now belongs, at least in part, to a private company who'll likely bulldoze it to build more shitty new builds.
Quote from: gilbertharding on November 01, 2021, 01:43:19 PMSeems like bad advice now - but aren't the boomers, with typical savviness, merely anticipating a crash in property values, caused by their generation inevitably buying the farm?Put it like this - I think the reason the property market hasn't even seen a 'correction' in the last 25 years is because the politicians daren't let it happen while so many over 60s (or voters, as they call them) are calling the shots. Once they're gone: who's holding the baby?
Quote from: paruses on November 01, 2021, 02:49:51 PMI don't disagree. The issue I have with it is that it's not like it's releasing housing that will be affordable/social - it really is targeting that section of not so savvy/gullible boomers (or older) and consolidating land ownership even further into the hands of a few.
Quote from: paruses on November 01, 2021, 07:38:24 PMBut more importantly - quick straw poll - is anyone getting hit with ads for Numan erectile disfunction tablets? I quite like the ad because it shouts the word Dong at you four times in a pleasing way. But this is all on catch up which would make me think they're targeted and I haven't been looking for anything like that not even for a friend.
